Apprenticed as a carpenter and joiner when apprenticeships were readily available, Trevor has always had a fascination with tools and machinery. A chosen career change to furniture restoration was a move which brought new challenges and skills to learn and 25 years were spent in Honiton Devon working as a restorer. Joining the company here in Axminster four years ago, Trevor brought a wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm to the team and particularly enjoys meeting customers and fellow woodworkers and talking tools. The staff at George Mudge & Co would like to welcome you to our on-line products catalogue. A person from London, was looking for a company to make the kitchen for his wife in their Zimbabwean house.
Fortunately for us, Simon Ainsworth-Taylor who’s also English but leaves in Cape Town and is managing this project from the South African side, found our company on the Internet and recommended us for the job.


His wife fell in love with the country, and her husband promised that one day he will build for her a house in this small town.
So, because our client couldn’t find woodwork company in Zimbabwe, he decided to find one in Johannesburg and transport the kitchen to Zimbabwe.
Unfortunately I couldn’t finish the installation in the pantry and the scullery, so I have photos only for the kitchen and the utility room. Anyway, I may post some more photos when the local woodworker finish with the rest of the installation. The kitchen island and the display cabinet are made out of the best and darkest mahogany I could find in South Africa. They wanted the mahogany to be whitewashed and we had to brush all the wood, paint it white and then send it with very fine sand paper.


The technique gives an old aged look of the units and it matches very well with all the shabby chic furniture which will come around them. Because we weren’t sure how much white to leave on the mahogany, we made it a little too white and left sandpaper in case Portia wants to show a little more of the wood. Becoming self employed upon learning his craft he undertook a variety of different jobs including installing laboratories at universities and hospitals, and helping to refurbish several banks. Trevor particularly enjoys woodturning and time spent in the workshop working on various furniture projects.
